Twenty-four-year old Andrew Wilde’s life is a free-wheeling game of tending bar, clubbing, and shooting pool until his best friend, Tom, finds a new kind of club: whose members contribute to the false incarceration of innocent people.
Andrew and Tom have been friends for twenty years, but it’s a relationship charged with Tom’s anger at life in general and his estranged, philandering father specifically. So far, Tom’s bitterness cuts only Andrew and him, but now Tom has a whole new plan: to plant drugs on his father, get him arrested and imprisoned, make him suffer for breaking Tom’s once-happy home.
To distract Tom from revenge, Andrew joins him for extra hours at a nightmarish underground sex club plus fifteen hours a week of tennis lessons. But the time commitment means Andrew must sacrifice his own greatest love, which is pool. Severed from life’s old anchor, Andrew reaches for a new source of solace and affection. For the first time in his life he finds love with a woman.
Still Tom vacillates, he pulls Andrew’s new love’s friend into the incarceration club, too. If Andrew can't get his life and Tom's in order, then Tom will commit a horrible injustice, his father will be imprisoned, and Andrew’s girlfriend -- she's the only thing still holding him up -- will leave him forever.
